UPCOMING IN-PERSON TRAINING
Department & GrOup TRAINING
We are pleased to offer all of our online training programs for bulk/shift/department rentals. Discounted rates and extended length rental periods are available.
As an option, you can add a live virtual Q&A with our instructors. Allow your members to attend the online program at their convenience, and follow up with a live discussion where we can answer questions and talk about application to your department, area, and operations. This can be a great way to reduce the overtime associated with delivering training!
CUSTOM ONLINE TRAINING PROGRAMS
We are able to offer custom programs on any single or combination of our topics. These programs can be delivered virtually either live or recorded, with an option to purchase a recording of the program for future use.
IN-PERSON SEMINARS + PRESENTATIONS
All of our program started as traditional, in-person, classroom programs - and they're still available that way! Seminars, presentations, and keynotes are available on all of our topics at lengths varying from just an hour to multiple days. Contact for more info.
HANDS-ON TRAINING PROGRAMS
It's been said "the best way to learn, is by doing" - and we couldn't agree more. We offer hands-on programs on a wide-range of fire department operations - from incident command to engine/truck company operations.
Programs vary in length from a 2-hour "drill night" to multiple days. They may include all hands-on, or a mixture of hands-on and classroom. We also offer a hybrid option where the "classroom" portion of a program is delivered virtually followed by an in-person HOT event.
OPERATIONAL/TRAINING ASSESSMENTS + CONSULTING
Not every fire department has enough staff to handle all the competing needs! And sometimes it's valuable to look outside your box and get a fresh set of eyes on your challenges and operations.
Our staff consists of experienced firefighters of various ranks who have worked in departments of varying make-up and different operational styles. We are pleased to offer consultation on your department's operations or training program and provide assistance and counsel on taking your fireground performance to the next level.
Assistance with policy development, tactical/operational plans, and training program planning and management are just some of the assistance we can offer.
Aggressive Command Supports Aggressive Firefighting
Departments must avoid impractical command practices that slow or hamper putting the fire out, but must also avoid a lack of strong command that fails to organize the incident and aggressively deploy crews to solve the problem. This program discusses best practices that incident commanders can use to maximize the capabilities of their firefighting forces.
Tower Ladder Operations
This program will discuss
proper use of tower ladders in several fireground scenarios
including firefighter access, rescue of civilians or firefighters, elevated master streams, and technical rescue. This will include discussion of rear-mount and mid-mount devices and comparisons will also be drawn between tower ladders and straight aerials, contrasting the pro’s and con’s of each in the above situations.
1st Alarm Strategy & Tactics
This program will discuss strategy and tactics for fires in single family dwellings, apartments, and commercial structures. We will focus on the differentiating factors between these structures and how differences in construction, occupancy, and other factors must influence firefighting operations.
Combat Ready Firefighting
Our attitude is our choice and this intense, interactive discussion frankly discusses the attitudes and mindsets in today’s fire service and how they effect our ability to save lives and property, keep each other safe, and get the job DONE. We will focus on defining the Combat Ready mentality - discussing where we are, where we could be, and how to get there. Implementation of this mindset at the individual, company, and department levels is discussed.
The Engine & The Truck
We will discuss tactics, and skills for the two primary elements of firefighting - engine & truck operations. Equipment, apparatus, assignments, tactics and skills will be discussed Street-smart integration of the modern "science" is covered. Take your company's operations to the next level!
